Brewers News & Notes
- Back on Wednesday, rumors started coming out that the Mariners were looking to trade for a catcher. In response to this, Noah wondered if it could be Jonathan Lucroy, and what it would take for the Mariners to acquire him.
- Two other potential trade chips on the team are Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura. Noah notes that a recent report from Jon Heyman has both listed as "somewhat likely" to be traded by the deadline.
- What would the team look like if every possible trade chip was traded? Noah considered that possibility as he put together a depth chart of the Brewers if anything of value was traded away.
- When Wily Peralta and Matt Garza return from the DL, the Brewers will be faced with a dilemma of having six starting pitchers for five slots. Yesterday, we looked at some of the options the Brewers have for when the rotation is back at full strength.
- Keith Law released his updated list of top prospects yesterday, and Orlando Arcia came in at #17 on his new list.
- Meanwhile, you can add this rumor to the list of possibilities that won't happen: Orlando Arcia has been drawing some attention as a possible trade target.
- Today is the last day to sign picks from the 2015 MLB Draft. Brewers first round pick Nathan Kirby has still not signed, but is expected to sign before the deadline today.
- What does Aramis Ramirez have left to offer? Over on BP Milwaukee, Derek Harvey believes that even though a deal in July is unlikely, Ramirez still has time to improve for an August trade.
- Also on BP Milwaukee, Ryan Romano looks at how Jeremy Jeffress has put together a breakout as a player starting last season and extending into this season.
- As the second half begins, Nicholas Zettel of Disciples of Uecker looks at several different projection methods to project what the Brewers will do in the second half of the season.
- Major League Night is set for this upcoming Tuesday, and Cait Covers The Bases has details on what will be happening at the ballpark for that event.
